What To Expect

Cherry Tree Hill
Approximately 850 feet above sea-level, this spot offers an excellent view of the "Scotland District" which covers the parish of St.Andrew and is named after the Patron Saint of Scotland.

It is believed that the name "Cherry Tree Hill" originated from the large number of cherry trees which once existed at this location.

Today the road is lined with mahogany trees, which were introduced into Barbados after the Treaty of Paris in 1763. As you descend the hill the mahogany trees give way to swaying sugar cane.

Morgan Lewis Mill
Morgan Lewis Windmill is located in the scenic hills of St. Andrew in Barbados and commands a most commanding view of the phenomenal east coast. Built in 1727, this typical wind-driven mill once crushed sugarcane to produce juice during the 18th and 19th centuries. Morgan Lewis Windmill stopped its operation in 1947 and was subsequently handed over to the Barbados National Trust for preservation as a museum. Morgan Lewis Windmill is among the World Monuments Fund list of 100 Most Endangered Sites in the World.

Bathsheba Beach
Legend has it that Bathsheba, wife of King David, bathed in milk to keep her skin beautiful and soft. Legend also says that the surf covered white waters of Bathsheba, Barbados rich in minerals and life is said to resemble Bathsheba's bath in both appearance health giving value.

St. John's Church
Built in 1846 to replace the church that was destroyed by the Great Hurricane of 1831, this classic Gothic church is solid and soaring. The church grounds are serene and the cliff-edge site commands a sweeping view of the picturesque east coast. A noteworthy statue and funerary plaques add to the interest, and a small guidebook gives you details. In the churchyard rests Ferdinando Paleologus, a descendant of Emperor Constantine the Great, whose family was driven from the throne in Constantinople by the Turks. Ferdinando died here in 1678, after being a resident for over 20 years. Though always English, Barbados has attracted multinationals for quite some time.

Gun Hill Signal Station
Gun Hill is the finest of a series of signal stations built in 1818. These stations sighted ships approaching Barbados and signaled to each other, advising of the type of vessel and whether if was a friend or foe! In case of attack, the forts and soldiers could be quickly readied to defend the island. In the signal tower a chart shows just what detailed information could be relayed with the use of a few flags. The signal stations were also used to warn of slave rebellions on the island.

Barbados Garrison
The location is the Historic Garrison Savannah, close to the capital, Bridgetown. The Garrison Savannah has been the home of horse racing in Barbados since 1845. The officers of the British Regiment, who were stationed in Barbados, used what was then the parade ground to match their horses in races and the wealthy merchants and planters later joined them.

Carlisle Bay
Carlisle Bay is a nice tranquil beach located just on the outskirts of Bridgetown, where the focal point is the bobbing boats moored in the bay. It is a vast area of mostly placid and clear waters with no undertow, and is excellent for photos, snorkeling and Scuba diving, while boasting the most visited dive sites in Barbados. We will visit Copacaban on Carlisle bay where you will be greeted with a welcome drink and use of a beach lounger and shared umbrella is included whilst you enjoy some time at the beach

Amazing views and great stories!

A short journey into the history of Barbados.

This was a great way to see the highlights of the island over the short period of time we had there. Charles was a great tour guide and picked us up promptly at 9 am. We were the only people on the tour and we appreciated the personal touches that Charles added to the tour. We saw a lot over the three hours we were with him. The view of the Scottish District from Cherry Hill was awesome. We drove past several Chattle Houses where former slaves lived on the plantations and by Harrison's Savannah a World Heritage Site. We got out at Bathsheba Beach and the beautiful St. John Parish Church and cemetery. The walkabout at both places was very interesting. Along the way Charles answered any of the questions we posed. We decided to forego our time at the beach as it was raining off and on, but overall we felt we got a good feel for the island and it's history. Charles was very personable, knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it and Charles for any future travelers to Barbados.
Great Island Overview

A lot of driving. Lots to see with tour guide providing interesting information. Poorly organised session at the beach - not sure where to go or what to do - no chairs/beds available - had to wait to be seated. Sunbeds ok once we were settled
